                        The pronunciation in this video was so painful to hear, I don't think a single Australian name or word was said correctly.

                                Can confirm part of the end of the video - Holden Acadia is built right here in Spring Hill, Tennessee alongside the GMC Acadia (no way, really?!?!), Cadillac XT-5, and Cadillac XT-6. Even though they are essentially a sticker swap of the GMC version I actually think the Holden version looks incredible!

                                      Holden wanted to End off the non-HSV Commodore by fitting one with an LS3 containing 304 Kw (407 Hp) on a Performance-Oriented, 95-98 Octane Sedan: The VF2 SSV Redline.

                                                    incorrect information in this video - the late generation monaro was an opel omega coupe from europe - very little if any of holden australia output was designed locally
